Mexican rapist caught by the United States Marshals Service
The United States Marshals Service (USMS) and Department of Public Safety (DPS) continued their sex offender enforcement efforts under the newly signed Adam Walsh Act by capturing convicted Sex Offender Evaristo Saucedo, a Mexican National. Saucedo had fled authorities on two prior occasions, but could not escape the Task Force members last night. He was spotted by surveillance vehicles riding his bike to his girlfriend’s house. As police moved in to arrest Saucedo, he tried to flee on his bike. Authorities quickly surrounded him and effected the arrest.
Saucedo was wanted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. He was convicted in 1998 of Sexual Assault and Kidnapping. The conviction stems from and incident where Saucedo tied up his girlfriend in her vehicle and raped her while her two children sat in the back seat. Saucedo has been arrested six different times for Assault. He has been deported on two occasions as an Aggravated Felon, but managed to return to the U.S.
Under the newly formed Adam Walsh Act that was signed into law on the 25th anniversary of Adam Walsh’s abduction and murder; the United States Marshals will have the primary authority for apprehending sex offenders who fail to register or otherwise comply with the statute. The USMS is taking immediate steps to address the apprehension of fugitives like Saucedo who prey on women and children.
